What is a Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DEI) Listening Session?

A listening session is like a focus group: a facilitated discussion with a group of people, aimed at collecting information about their experiences, views, and responses to questions about topics related to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

Group: Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) Art Therapists and Students

The acronym BIPOC represents groups that have faced and continue to face prevalent marginalization, discrimination, racism, and oppression. Individuals with African or Caribbean ancestry, belonging to groups native to the Americas, including Native Americans, Indigenous peoples from the Americas who immigrated to the U.S. and people of color who are Black, Asian, Latinx, Middle Eastern, Indian, and Pacific Island heritage, among others. This group is open to art therapists and students of art therapy who are not AATA members, as well as members of the Association.

Session is full. Please email kmichel@arttherapy.org with subject line "Listening Session" to be put on a waitlist. Include your name and the name of the Listening Session that you would be interested in. We will contact you if a space opens up.

Important Note on Participant Confidentiality

Ground rules and guidelines are established in each group to help foster participant trust. Participants must agree to group confidentiality and not to take notes, photography, or audio and video recordings. 

The DEI facilitator taking notes will use a method that provides a reporting of the overall group’s responses and themes but does not track or identify specific participants (i.e. who said what) but provides a reporting of the overall group’s responses and themes. Facilitator notes are available for participants to review and verify.
